Re: Gender neutral succession
It may very well be Sweden as Victoria is the most likely heiress to succeed first. Another candidate could be Elisabeth of Belgium as i assume she will succeed her father once he abdicates rather than Victoria who will succeed after the death of her father.
I hope she'll reintroduce the black and ermine lined state gowns previously worn for the opening of the Swedish parliament in the Great Hall of the Palace even if it would be for her swearing in ceremony only.
Which of the European monarchies might be the first to have a King consort, do you think?
The stumbling block I believe is the deeply entrenched belief in male supremacy, more or less the world over.
It will take considerable courage on the part of politicians I feel.
